Description:

I did a lot of trial and error until I kindof got a result that matches the elementary feeling - a little.

I don't know of a way to get rid of the menubars (hide them,'globalmenu' them or 'menubutton' them).

Icon theme is just the elementary mono dark icons from the elementary-icon-theme package of the elementary ppa - I always delete the trash folder icon, tho. Personally I prefer the Humanity one.

The tar.gz contains:
* Almost-Elementary gtk2, gtk3 and metacity theme. (metacity is basically just adwaita in a little less... HUGE) (goes into /usr/share/themes/ )
* gnome-shell-theme - the theme folder for gnome shell - directly taken from /usr/share/gnome-shell/ since I don't use extensions.

You should know what you are doing if you want to use this. And make backups.

Man I can't wait to see what DanRabbit is cooking up for gtk3 - thats going to be pro.

v0.3 (Jun 2, 2011):
fixes for the updated adwaita-engine.
new download link

v0.2:
just improved the Buttons in gtk3 a lot.

Yeah it uses unico gtk engine.

Sorry I don't use Ubuntu but Frugalware (I'm in charge of the artwork).

Anyway, good work :)

Heh, thanks. For "good work" I guess I should have traced at least the sources what code snippet is from whom instead of just uploading something hacked/patched/pasted together.

I'm shure there are other people out there using gnome-shell on natty (or some other distribution without available alpha(?) gtk3 engines on it) who still want their gtk2 and gtk3 apps at least matching.

And I just think that "made of easy" and gnome-shell kindof go well together.

DanRabbit already works on the GTK3 version of Elementary, check the bzr repo here http://launchpad.net/egtk/

Oh I checked that, just since there is no natty version of that seemingly required engine, I just cooked this up for the time being.

As I said: I'm really looking forward to what the pro does. For now this patchwork does allright, don't you think? Plus it works on natty+gnome-shell repos without any more hassle.

But I'll definately keep my eyes on the egkt launchpad. ;)
